Registration is now open for the Virtual International Statistical Ecology Conference (vISEC2020).
The International Statistical Ecology Conference is a biennial meeting of researchers at the interface between ecology and statistics. At vISEC2020 we have planned an exciting list of keynote speakers that bridge these two disciplines, as well as training opportunities for attendees, a forum for interdisciplinary collaboration, and a healthy dose of fun - all online!
Home base for the conference will be a Slack workspace, where registered participants can mingle, watch live-streamed talks (and recordings of talks you missed, or want to watch again!), browse poster presentations, interact with presenters and other attendees via text or video chat, plan papers for our Special Issue proposal, check our Twitter stream, or compete at trivia night! There will be two conference sessions each day, no more than three hours in length, set at opposite ends of the Sydney day to better align with time zones around the world (8-11am & 9pm-12am GMT).
Prior to the conference opening, you can enrol in interactive short courses (20-21st June) to train up in a specific area; registration for these is $75AUD each. Each short course will be delivered using video conferencing tools, across two days, in one of the two regular conference session times (8-11am GMT or 9pm-12am GMT).
The first day of the conference (22nd June) is a Skills Showcase, with hands-on tutorials run in parallel on topics as diverse as high-dimensional data visualisation, hidden Markov models, deep learning, passive acoustics and more.
The remaining four days (23-26th June) will be an exciting mix of plenary talks, contributed and speed talks, poster sessions and discussions, and social mixers.
Registration for the conference is just $50AUD, giving you access to the Slack workspace where talks and discussions are stored for the duration of the conference and for two weeks following the conference close.
If you are experiencing financial hardship, conference registration fees can be waived, by selecting the appropriate item during registration. Please contact us if unsure whether this applies to you.
